Applicants for U.S. Attorney

Julie Kay and the Business Review detail the applicants for U.S. Attorney in the District: "Six current or former federal prosecutors, including two women, have applied for the position of U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, one of the largest and highest-profile districts in the nation. Florida Federal Judicial Nominating Commission chair Michael Grindstaff said he had received applications by Wednesday from interim U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta; Thomas Mulvihill, Acosta’s first assistant; Cynthia Hawkins, an assistant U.S. attorney in Orlando; and Edward Nucci, a West Palm Beach-based senior litigation counsel for the U.S. attorney’s office. In addition, Susan Tarbe, a former assistant U.S. attorney and current partner at Colson Hicks Eidson in Coral Gables, told the Daily Business Review that she had applied."

David, I thought you were going to apply. Why the change of heart? I would have applied if the committee accepted anonymous applications.

Maybe I'll apply after they learn to spell my name:

“It’s a shame we’re not getting the number of applications we traditionally get for U.S. attorney for the Southern District,” said David Marcus, vice president of the Miami chapter of the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. “People used to break down the door to get this job. Now there’s barely a knock. It shows how political the appointment has become.”

I think that they think you are related to Judge Marcus.
